Subject: [Histonet] microtome calibration

Has anyone had problems with the calibration of an A/O Spencer sliding
microtome?  I have used this one for years and now I am getting 'thick-thin'
sections?  I thought maybe the accumulation of oils in the mechanics of it
have slowed things down.  Can WD40 be applied without adverse effects?  I
certainly would not attempt opening up all the gears!!  Any suggestions
would be appreciated or if a medical equipment repairman is reading this - I
really need this thing fixed.
